Title: Gallows
Format: Generative audiovisual installation‭ (‬fresnel acrylic screen‭, ‬HD projector and computer‭)
Year: 2006

This work is based upon a piece of software for image visualization which was exclusively designed to reproduce the execution of a man sentenced to die in the gallows. The software was designed to reproduce a specific fragment of the scene: the free fall and consequent strangling of the condemned man. The original action happened in one second, which was transformed by the camera into twenty-five video frames. Out of the twenty-five frames, twelve describe the free fall, and the other thirteen show the dead body, hanging from a rope tied to its neck. The reason of the representation of that movement and its circumstances constitute the central axis of research for this software.
